The China Railways HXN3 (EMD classification JT56ACe) is a 6000 horsepower (4.5 MW) diesel-electric locomotive designed by Electro-Motive Diesel for export to China. All JT56ACe locomotives use AC traction motor technology and use the EMD H-Engine as their prime mover. The locomotives are capable of meeting the EPA's Tier 2 emissions regulations.[1]

In September 2005, the People's Republic of China announced an order for 300 JT56ACe locomotives. The locomotives were jointly manufactured by EMD and China's own Dalian Locomotive Works.[1] They are dual cab locomotives.

Number 0301 - 0330 are single cab locomotives. They are coupled back to back and used on Tibet line.

Number 7001 - 7002 are delivered to Shenhua Mining Group.
